As thousands gathered in Nuwara Eliya to enjoy the cool climes and celebrate the dawn of Avurudu, Elephant House planned a corporate social responsibility project created a meaningful impact in helping to keep the city clean. In collaboration with the Nuwara Eliya Municipal Council, Elephant House distributed garbage bins around the city. The bins were placed in popular locations around the city and venues including near Gregory Lake and surrounding areas, which expected a higher foot fall, thus ensuring everyone in Nuwara Eliya enjoyed the festivities more responsibly, protecting the environment as well.
